If David Hagen stands to benefit from the GPAC deal, and Louise Brady's Brady Trane employs Guilford County's Hank Henning...?


If David Hagen is on the CFGG Board, Executive Committee, and Development Committee, and stands to receive a direct financial benefit from the GPAC deal, and Louise Brady's Brady Trane employs Guilford County Commissioner Hank Henning, how was Hank's vote on taxpayer financing for GPAC not illegal, if Brady Trane stands to acquire the GPAC heating and air contract, even though Louise is on the board?

From yesterday;

Looks like Hagan Properties stands to profit from the GPAC while David Hagan sits on CFGG's board of directors with Walker Sanders

Doesn't the City of Greensboro have the ability to purchase real estate without having to pay commissions?

If the CFGG is purchasing real estate for the City of Greensboro to purchase, why would the CFGG not want to save taxpayers a couple of hundred thousand dollars by not paying real estate commissions if they didn't have to?

Self dealing anyone?

Can anyone see any crony capitalism in this deal?

Will Brady Trane bid for the heating and air deal for the GPAC?

“The consultants have done a very detailed and thorough analysis of a performing arts center for Greensboro. The findings certainly indicate the generally positive reactions to such a facility downtown, and give the task force a solid base of facts that will help inform our final recommendations to the city council on June 26,” said Louise Brady, co-chair of the Greensboro Performing Arts Center Task Force.

Either the CFGG board wasn't told or they knew and didn't do anything.

City Council either knew and didn't do anything or didn't know.

Hank Henning certainly knew.

Do upper-class folks tend to be more unethical, take from others, lie in negotiation and cheat than lower-class individuals?

City of Greensboro money flowing through the Community Foundation into one of it's board member's pockets.

So if the board members voted that it's cool for another connected board member to make big money on the deal, it's wrong. And if they didn't vote, it's a violation of their conflict of interest policy, which is also wrong. = lose, lose.

Taxpayers are funding David Hagan's commissions, while they have a purchasing department that buys real estate without having to pay them.

It's a strait out rip off.

Same with when Brenda Jones tried to hire a real estate agent crony, only different. Again, taxpayer money is set to pay Hagan's unnecessary commissions.

If David Hagen stands to gain, then Brady does, which makes Hank Henning's vote illegal.
